 Helping Hands would like to give a big THANK YOU to all the NNNC members who donated to Support Our Troops this month.  We collected 246 pounds of food and other non-food items to fill stocking for our men and women serving to protect our country. 

The Mini Fundraising Event for Loaves and Fishes by the NNNC Daytime Potluck group raised $254.25.   With Loaves and Fishes connections, that will be multiplied by eight! Thank you to Bob Nieland for growing the plants  and  Carolyn Klein for organizing. and making those wonderful preserves!  Lorraine Nieland is featured.

This submission from our friend and member Tina Cui:
"I’m humbled. My high school alumni mailed to me 1,500 masks, 4 isolation gowns, 4 googles to donate to Edward hospital. They paid for everything including shipping. I don’t even know those alumni. In April they have sent over 120,000 masks to the Midwest, Seattle, New York, and California. I am blessed to have two homes: Qingdao, China and Naperville, IL. When I went to drop off the second batch today I saw PPEs donated from United Chinese Association in the Midwest.
A friend in Shanghai also helped me procure 1000 KN95 masks. After leaving the factory, these masks waited for 8 days to get on a DHL plane and finally arrived Edward Hospital last Friday. The next thing I knew, I received a check of $1000 from a Naperville friend Beth Riordan to help cover the cost."
Thank you Tina and thank you to Beth and Dennis Riordan!
